With the enhanced preamps, Craig at RPI Valencia suggests changing the value
of the first two zener diodes on the blue cell base to prevent overload of
the 2154 Blue PMT. The Festival preamps may benefit from this also.
Apparently, this is what has been done on Golds and Turbo IIs recently.
Craig also showed us a mod that has been done to the Turbo II mirror to
prevent reflections from the edge. He has been here for about two months,
and has done a lot of work on the high def Rank, Ursas, and now Turbo IIs.
He has been most helpful.

Thanks, we were wondering what happened to Steve.
